Found somebody willing to sell me a Seagate Surveillance 10TB SATA 3 6GB/s 7200RPM.

Since I was looking around for something to replace my movies drive, I just need to know from somebody who knows if this would serve my purpose.

ST10000VE0008 {As far as I can see it's a model from 2021.}

I see it's got great copy speed @ 250MB/s, much better than what I have now @220MB/s.

And don't forget to mention that it's 5 times larger, than the drive it's going to be replacing: Seagate Barracuda 2TB SATA 3 6GB/s 7200RPM.

It will work no problem.
You'll not see any real difference between "250MB/s " and "220MB/s".


Me, however...I do not buy used hard drives.
Hey great to hear from you again on this search of mine for a suitable replacement drive.
Well at least it's not a worse or slower drive.

Yes I have also never or don't usually consider buying second hand parts.

But since I have never had a Seagate drive go bad on me yet, and that this possibility is a model from 2021.

The seller also claims the the drive was only in use for 4 months and never again, because the media pc that it was installed in died, so left with the well working parts to sell and this is one part.

Looks real promising to me. I know the purchase would not be ideal and I would have no return or warranty policy, but I need to get a drive that is large and fast pronto.

Got all my movies and data cramped up onto my two remaining mechanical drives right now, cant start with my real upgrade plan yet because of this.
